This post may hurt some feelings, but that is not the goal. The goal is to shift our thinking toward a better solution for our families, children and community.
I often (though not often enough) hear parents say, "We really want to get our kids into church," or "We need to start going to church for our kids." My honest, initially unspoken response is, "Why?" The parents who say this are obviously not going to church. Here is the challenge: If church is not important in their lives, why should they expect church to be important in their children's lives? What are these parents really hoping for?
